Color Dispersion as an Indicator of Stellar Population Complexity: Insights from the Pixel Color-Magnitude Diagrams of 32 Bright Galaxies in Abell 1139 and Abell 2589
We investigate the properties of bright galaxies of various morphological types in Abell 1139 and Abell 2589, using pixel color-magnitude diagram (pCMD) analysis. The sample contains 32 galaxies brighter than M-r = -21.3 mag with spectroscopic redshifts, which are deeply imaged in the g and r bands using the MegaCam mounted on the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope. After masking contaminants with two-step procedures, we examine how the detailed properties in the pCMDs depend on galaxy morphology...[Show more]
